prayer, first defense? or last resort?

when somebody is faced with so much challenges in life, they tend to look everywhere for answers to their problems. then if they found none, they remembered God.. I am guilty. I used to be that way. How about you.

I grew up staying close to church. Never in time I did think of solutions first before praying. God gave us problems because he wants us to come unto him. We should always remember him FIRST before anything else in any situation of our life, after that, everything will follow. Let's do our part with His guidance.

I actually see it as a way God calls on you. He will exhaust all your resources until you realize that He's all you'll ever need. I guess it's not really our choice that we turn to prayer when everything else fails. He makes us choose Him to remind us that He's still there, through feast and famine. :)

A prayer is not supposed to be at first nor at last but instead it should be both. Yep honestly it's a package.. The first thing you do in the morning is commit everything to God, tell Him how you wanted things to work out the whole day etc.. But before you sleep, you again come to Him in prayer - whether your prayers have been granted or not- still seek Him and thank Him.. If there are prayers not granted, it's because He has better things for you than what you have prayed for in the morning.. God bless :)

Once I open my eyes everyday,I always ask thanking the graces from God with my early morning prayers of praise to His Holy Name.I also ask for His helping me make myself solve whatever problems I might encounter throughout the day.I think I have ask too much,yet I know I was given His help already because my problems do not stay too long for their are instant solutions that I can think of.
